    I love lighter pancake. these were simple, yet full of flavor. With all the lemon trees here, it's great. Will use this for brunch or dessert as well.

    I've made this recipe on and off for over 10 years. It is an awesome Swedish pancake and my kids love this. I am trying to move away from dairy and I substituted almond milk and it still came out perfect!

    These are the BEST pancakes! Every time I make them for a brunch, everyone (and I do mean everyone) asks for the recipe. I also make these for our family on a regular basis because we love them so much.

    I Have now made these for my family 3 times & it just keeps getting better. We absolutely love them. The flavor was absolutely everything I remembered.I would suggest to anyone not planning a large brunch, to cut the recipe in half (that is what I did). Also, I used a small saute pan, with 1/4 cupfuls of batter. The Pancakes come out purfectly.Pat ParkerSauk Centre, MN
